Getting kids to write can be challenging. By teaching children early is a great way to give them a jump start into learning to write. Be sure to make handwriting fun and children will look forward to practising.

It’s no secret that children just have this calling to draw. And sometimes, that calling means that they don’t necessarily draw on paper, but on other objects around your house as well…Walls, pictures, the dog…you name it, if it’s got a surface, they want to draw on it or colour it.
